Nobody said living this life would be easy

 

There’s a cost of living and it

 

Grows as you grow with time

 

I grew up broke and

 

I realized I’m one in a million

 

But a broke home doesn’t mean

 

I’m far gone

 

Those are my roots

 

From which I have grown

 

I don’t use that as grievance

 

Still in life I’m achieving

 

And I’m fighting with

 

Everything I have

 

And when I’m covered with cement

 

And my family’s grieving

 

They’ll say I gave

 

Everything I had

 

 

 

My hands are calloused from working so hard on a daily

 

A bath is in order this evening

 

Then I’ll feel fine

 

I wish my wife was here with her

 

Hands of healing

 

But she’s gone on to glory oh Lord

 

She left me here all alone

 

I don’t use that as grievance

 

Still in life I’m achieving

 

And I’m fighting with

 

Everything I have

 

And when I’m covered with cement

 

And my family’s grieving

 

They’ll say I gave

 

Everything I had

 

 

 

I wake up early to do the best I can for my children

 

I may not give them all they want

 

But their needs I provide

 

Clothes, shelter, time and I make sure

 

I always feed them

 

Above all I give them my love

 

But to me that’s still not enough

 

I don’t use that as grievance

 

Still in life I’m achieving

 

And I’m fighting with

 

Everything I have

 

And when I’m covered with cement

 

And my family’s grieving

 

They’ll say I gave

 

Everything I had

 

 

 

Old age has caught me and I feel myself slowly fading

 

I look back at my life now

 

And I am so satisfied

 

I take a glance at the light

 

Mounted on the ceiling

 

I’m going home

 

Keep a smile and stay strong

 

I’ll see you all when you get home

 

But don’t use this as grievance

 

Still in life you’re achieving

 

Just keep fighting with

 

Everything you have

 

And when you’re covered with cement

 

And your family’s grieving

 

They’ll say you gave

 

Everything you had
